36x zoom, can you take pictures of the past with this thing?

When Nikon says that the P500 digital camera has lots of zoom, it's serious. The P500 packs in a lens with a massive 36x optical zoom. I think you could see the craters on Uranus with that thing. The camera isn't all about long distance shots though; it has a 22.5mm wide angle lowest setting too.

At full 36x zoom its equivalent to 810mm on a 35mm camera. The image sensor in the camera is a 12.1MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and it has dual image processors and the EXPEED C2. The ISO speed is up to 3200 and it uses 5-way vibration reduction to keep the images blur-free.

The battery is good for 220 shots per charge and images are stored to SD/HC/XC cards. The camera also is able to record 1080p HD video as well. The camera will ship in March for $399.95.
